La Liga title to be decided on dramatic last weekend in Spain

Doyle BarkerMay 20, 2017

"We still have to play the last game and it is going to be at least as hard as it was in Vigo".

Man of the moment, Cristiano Ronaldo scored the first goal in the 10th minute after a bad clearance from Celta Vigo left back Johny in which the hosts' goalie Sergio Alvarez was left helpless.

Madrid has won two Champions Leagues in the last three seasons, but it hasn't been successful in La Liga since 2012.

Pique was captured on camera after Barca's victor in the Clasico clash at the Bernabeu last month mouthing "we are infinitely better" than Madrid.

Both Barcelona and Real Madrid faced away fixtures against sides with nothing to play for, with Granada and Deportivo, Madrid's opponents, having secured La Liga survival before the final round.

Everyone expects Real Madrid to wrap up the La Liga title on Sunday when they travel to Malaga - especially as their opponents are managed by Michel, who spent 20 years with the Madrid club.

"Celta were really raring to win, but we showed that we were capable of managing the game", he said. He leads it by two goals ahead of Aritz Aduriz. Those suspicions were seemingly confirmed over a decade later, with several players from that Valencia squad admitting that they'd received incentive from Barcelona.

Filling in for the rested David de Gea, the Argentina goalkeeper tipped aside Manolo Gabbiadini's sixth-minute spot-kick that was awarded for a handball against Eric Bailly even though video replays the contact was outside the area.

United manager Jose Mourinho has already said Romero will start in the final ahead of regular goalkeeper David de Gea, as he has done throughout the European competition, and praised his performance.

Eduardo Berizzo's side have gone off the boil in recent months and their season effectively ended last week with their Europa League semifinal elimination to Manchester United, although they still made Real work for the victory.

"Juventus are very good, too". Whether it will be enough to earn Madrid the title remains to be seen but you can find out all the football betting tips and predictions for Spanish Leagues.

The Las Palmas born attacker claimed Madrid also wanted to take him on as a youngster but he has always held Barca close to his heart.

The former Santos star has scored 19 goals and assisted a further 25 strikes for his colleagues in 43 games this season.

Southampton's wait for a home goal moved past the six-hour mark.
